Andrew Creer

Our Own Andrew Buchanan ran a blistering time of 29:08.89 to finish 7th in the 2017 Zatopek 10, the Austalian 10,000m Championship.

The crowd lined up behind the rope in lane 6, to see the determination and sweat of the athletes, as well as a few looks of surprise as the sprinklers on the in field came on.
